Maharashtra to extend quota to Marathas who applied under it in 2014

AIR
Maharashtra government has decided to extend the benefit of reservation in education and jobs to the members of the Maratha community, who had applied under it in 2014.

The government said it will complete the process of quota for Marathas, which had remained incomplete after the high court stayed it in 2014. The BJP-led government's decision is significant in view of the upcoming Assembly elections. 

A government resolution (GR) issued by the chief minister-led General Administration Department yesterday stated that reservation will be applicable to those who had applied for it between July 9, 2014 and November 14, 2014.

On June 27, Bombay High Court ruled that the reservation extended by the state government to the community by categorising them as a Socially and Educationally Backward Class (SEBC) was valid.


On the basis of the court order, 13 per cent of posts in recruitment for government jobs and 12 per cent of all seats in educational institutions have been reserved for the community.
